The Spooools! Our Oscar-alternative awards…

|O| - O.M.G. The inaugural "Spooools" are here!

Yes we know the Oscars never pick the right films (Drive, Take Shelter) and make glaringly obvious omissions (Senna, Shame), but here at Spooool we love all the glitz, glamour, backstabbing, fake smiles, terrible jokes and embarrassingly emotional speeches that the Academy Awards have to offer.

You can of course check out the official Oscar nominations here but for our alternative take on the awards season, cast an eye over the inaugural “Spooools”.

From Best Facial Hair to Achievements in Gratuitous Violence we’ve tried to shine some light on the films the Oscars deemed unworthy of their little gold statuette.
